Transcribed by Eric B Aasen
[Scene: Chandler and Joeyís, there is lumber all over the apartment]
Chandler: (entering) Hey!
Chandler: Hey-hey-hey. So what happened? A forest tick you off?
Joey: No. Y'know how weíre always saying we need a place for the mail.
Joey: Well, I started building one. But then I decided to take it to the next step.
Chandler: Youíre building a post office?
Joey: No, an entertainment unit, with a mail cubby built right in. Itís a one day job, max.
Chandler: Okay. (notices that Joey is wearing some really tight jeans) My word! Those are snug.
Joey: Oh yeah. These are my old work pants, Sergio Valenteís.
(Chandler goes to his bedroom and opens the door. However, only the top half opens, and he trips into his bedroom over the bottom half.)
Joey: Power saw kinda got away from me there.
[Scene: Outside Central Perk, Phoebe is pacing back and forth waiting for someone.]
Rachel: (joining Phoebe outside) Hey Pheebs.
Rachel: Any sign of your brother?
Phoebe: No, but heís always late.
Rachel: I thought you only met him once?
Phoebe: Yeah, I did. I think it sounds y'know big sistery, y'know, ĎFrankís always late.í
Rachel: Well relax, heíll be here.
Phoebe: No, I know, Iím just nervous. Y'know itís just y'know Momís dead, donít talk to my sister, Grandmaís been sleeping a lot lately. Itís like the last desperate chance to have a family, y'know, kinda thing. Youíre so sweet to wait with me.
Rachel: Well, actually Gunther sent me. Youíre not allowed to have cups out here, itís a thing. (takes her cup and goes back inside)
[Scene: inside Central Perk]
Chandler: Does anyone else think David Copperfield is cute?
Monica: No, but he told me, he thinks you're a fox.
Chandler: All right, Janice, likes him. In fact she likes him so much she put him on her freebie list.
Joey: Her what?
Chandler: Well, we have a deal, where we each get to pick five celebrities that we can sleep with, and the other one canít get mad.
Ross: Ah, the heart of every healthy relationship. Honesty, respect, and sex with celebrities.
Monica: So, Chandler, whoís on your list?
Chandler: Ah, Kim Basinger, Cindy Crawford, Halle Berry, Yasmine Bleeth, and ah, Jessica Rabbit.
Rachel: Now, you do realize that sheís a cartoon, and way out of your league?
Chandler: I know, I know, I just always wondered if I could get her eyes to pop out of her head.
Joey: Hey, Monica, who would yours be?
Monica: First, I need a boyfriend, then I can have a list.
Joey: Itís just a game Mon. (makes a ĎCan-you-believe-herí face to the rest of the gang.) Rach, how about you?
Rachel: Oh, I donít know, I guess, Chris OíDonnel, John F. Kennedy, Jr., Daniel Day Lewis, Sting, and Parker Stevenson.
Rachel: Hardy Boy.
Chandler: Peter Parker.
Ross: Thank you.
Rachel: What about you honey, who would be on your list?
Ross: Well I-I-I, that kind of thing requires some serious thought. First, Iíll divide my perspective candidates into categories....
Chandler: (coughing) What a geek!
Phoebe: (entering) Everybody this is Frank! This is my half-brother Frank.
All: Oh, hi.
Phoebe: This is everybody. This is Ross.
Frank: How are you?
Phoebe: This is Monica.
Phoebe: And this is Rachel.
Phoebe: Iím gonna get coffee.
Frank: Hey, how do you guys get anything done?
Chandler: We donít, really.
Rachel: Well, so, now, do you guys have a lot of big plans?
Phoebe: Oh yeah! Yeah, no, weíre gonna connect, y'know bond, and everything.
Frank: Yeah, I was thinking that maybe we could go down to Time Square and pick up some ninja stars. And, oh, um, my friend Larry, he wants me to take a picture of a hooker.
Chandler: You know, we donít really take advantage of living in the city.
Joey: I know.
[Scene: Chandler and Joeyís, Joey is drilling a hole in the wall and the drill comes out the other side really close to Chandlerís head. Chandler then rushes out to talk to Joey.]
Joey: Oh, Iím sorry. Did I get Ďya?
Chandler: No, you didnít get me!! Itís an electric drill, you get me, you kill me!!
Joey: Calm down, do you want this unit or not?
Chandler: I do NOT want this unit!!
Joey: Well, you shouldíve told me that before, Iím not a mind reader. Hey, weíre out of beer. Iím going to Monicaís.
Chandler: Fine! (goes into his room and slams the door, then he slams the bottom half of the door.)
[Scene: Monica and Rachelís, Joey is entering]
Monica: Hey! Where Ďya headiní in those pants? 1982?
Joey: Oh Monica, listen, I ah, I saw down at the hardware store, they got those designer tiles on sale. If you ever want to redo the bathroom floor.
Monica: Why, whatís wrong with my bathroom floor?
Joey: Nothing. Itís just old and dingy, thatís all.
Monica: I highly doubt that. (they both go to the bathroom)
Joey: Oh yeah. If you ah, move your hamper, you see what color the tile used to be. (Monica gasps) Yeah.
Monica: I canít live like this! What are we gonna do? What are we gonna do?
Joey: Relax. Here hold this (hands her his beer). This old stuff just comes right off. (he bends down to try and lift some tile right in the middle of the floor, in his tight pants.)
Monica: Thatís a little more than I wanted to see.
Joey: (manages to pry off only a small piece) Aw! Look at that, every inch of this stuff is glued down. Itíd take forever to pry this up. You should ah, you should just leave it. (starts to walk away, but Monica grabs him)
Monica: I canít leave it! You gouged a hole in my dingy floor.
(Joey places the toliet brush and holder over the hole, which is in the middle of the floor.)
Joey: Eh! There you go.
Monica: You know thatís nice, y'know we could put it back there after the surgeons remove it from your colon!
[Scene: Phoebeís, Frank and her, are sitting on the counh, watching TV]
Phoebe: (sits up) Oh, ew!
Phoebe: Yeah I know what I wanted to ask you. Um, can you roll your tongue? Because I can, and my Mom couldnít, and I thought y'know, I figured that was something I got from our Dad.
Frank: What, wait, you mean like this? (does it)
Phoebe: Yeah, yeah. You can do it to. (tries to do it, but canít)
Frank: You're not doing it.
Phoebe: Oh right, yeah okay, my Mom could, and I canít. We donít have that....
Frank: Whenís your birthday?
Phoebe: Feburary 16th.
Frank: I know a guy whoís the 18th.
Phoebe: Wow, thatís close. Whenís yours?
Frank: October 25th.
Phoebe: Thatís the same month as Halloween. So, um, what kinda things do you like to do at home?
Frank: Melt stuff.
[Scene: Central Perk, Ross is working on his list]
Ross: Okay, Iíve got three of my five.
Rachel: Three of your five, what?
Ross: Celebrities Iím allowed to sleep with.
Rachel: Oh my God! You are giving this a lot of thought.
Ross: Yeah, itís hard okay, I only have two spots left.
Chandler: All right, so who do you got it narrowed down to?
Ross: Okay, Elizabeth Hurely....
Chandler: Oooh-hoo, very attractive, forgiving.
Ross: Susan Sarandon.
Chandler: Eh, y'know what, sheís to political, she probably wouldnít let you do it, unless you donated four cans of food first.
Ross: And!! Isabella Rosselini.
Chandler: Ooh-hoo. Very hot, very sexy. But ah, y'know sheís too international, y'know sheís never gonna be around.
Chandler: So, you gotta play the odds, pick somebody whoís gonna be in the country like all the time.
Rachel: Yeah, Ďcause thatís why you wonít get Isabella Rosselini, geography.
[Scene: Phoebeís, Frank is melting a plastic spoon.]
Phoebe: Okay so, by melting, you meant melting.
Phoebe: So is it like art?
Frank: Yeah, you can melt art. Hey, can I use your phone?
Phoebe: Um, yeah sure. Why you wanna call your Mom?
Frank: No, I wanna melt it.
Phoebe: Oh, well um, not right now. Y'know Iím just gonna go to bed, I think the fumes are giving me a headache.
Frank: (starts laughing) Yeah!
Phoebe: Gínight, bro.
Phoebe: Here. (gives him a fire extinguisher) Y'know, just in case.
Frank: Oh, excellent. (starts to melt the fire extinguisherís hose.)
[Scene: Monica and Rachelís, Phoebe is eating breakfast with Monica while Frank is playing with num-chucks on the balcony]
Monica: What kind of karate is that?
Phoebe: No kind. He just makes it up.
Monica: So howís it going with you guys?
Phoebe: So far, it kinda blows. I donít know, I just thought y'know that heíd feel more like a brother y'know, like you and Ross, just like close and connected and....
Monica: Oh honey, weíre close now but you-you wouldnít believe the years of-of nugies, and wedgies, and flying wedgies, and atomic wedgies, and....(Phoebe shakes her head like she doesnít understand) Thatís where the waistband actually goes over your head.
Monica: Oh, we used to drive each other crazy playing the shadow game.
Phoebe: Oh, how do you play the shadow game?
Monica: Oh, how do you play the shadow game?
Phoebe: I just asked you.
Monica: I just asked you.
Phoebe: I donít have time for this.
Monica: No, that is what the game is.
Phoebe: Which you just gave up really quickly.
Chandler: (entering) Have you seen Joey?
Monica: Whatís the matter?
Chandler: Oh, just this! (turns around and has a paint lid stuck to the back of his pants.) Yíknow what itís my fault really, because the couch is usually where we keep the varnish.
Joey: (yelling from bathroom) Hey, does somebody wanna hand me one of those tiles.
Chandler: Whatís going on?
Monica: Heís retiling my floor. (they both run to the bathroom)
Chandler: Yo!! Spackel boy! Get up!
Monica: Ah-ah-ah, now you started this, you will finish it.
Chandler: He started mine first!
Phoebe: Build the unit Cinderelly, lay the tile Cinderelly.
[Scene: Phoebeís, Phoebe and Frank are watching TV.]
Frank: Whoa! Big octopus.
Phoebe: Yeah. (phone rings and Phoebe answers it) ĎHello. (listens) Oh my God, I totally forgot! (listens) Well canít someone else do it. (listens) But, I have company. (listens) Yeah, no look, thatís all right Iíll come in.í (hangs up phone) Um, Frank, Iím really sorry but I have to go to work. Itís-itís one of my regulars and heís insisting that I do Ďum.
Frank: Hey, what kind of work do you do?
Phoebe: Oh! Iím a masseuse. I give people massages and stuff.
Frank: You-you work at one of those massage parlors?
Phoebe: Well, y'know we donít call it that, but yeah!
Frank: (starts laughing) Wow! Thatís wild! No, I had no idea.
Phoebe: All righty. Iíll be back in-in a little bit. Unless you wanna come with me?
Frank: You mean like watch?
Phoebe: No, no, you can get one yourself. Itíll be on the house! Y'know what are big sisters for?
Frank: Well, I donít think this, y'know.
Phoebe: No, no, no, I wouldnít do you myself, I mean that would be weird. Yeah, no, Iíll get one of the other girls to do it. Oh, this will be so much fun! Hey! Are you excited?
Frank: Yeah! Hey, do Monica and Rachel work there?
[Scene: Monica and Rachelís bathroom, Joey and Monica are admiring the new floor.]
Monica: Itís beautiful! Itís like the first bathroom floor there ever was. (Chandler tries to go to the bathroom) Whoa! Are you going in there for?

Monica: And who laminated it?
Ross: That would be me.
Rachel: All right let me see. (grabs the card) Uma Thurman, Winona Ryder, Elizabeth Hurely, Michelle Pfieffer, and Dorothy Hammel?
Ross: Hey, itís my list.
Rachel: Okay honey, you do realize she only spins like that on ice.
[Scene: Healing Hands Inc. (Phoebeís work), Frank is being ushered in, by the arm, to the room Phoebe is in by another girl.]
Frank: Ow!-Ow!-Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Y'know, ow!
Phoebe: Hey!-Hey! Whatís going on?
Frank: She broke my arm.
Girl: He touched my fanny.
Frank: No, she touched mine first!
Girl: Thatís my job!
Frank: So wait, whatís the deal here, I can have sex with you, but I canít touch you?
Phoebe and Girl: Ewww!!!
Phoebe: You canít have sex with her!
Girl: Whatíd you think I was, a hooker?
Frank: No, you're a masseuse, itís cool, Iím not a cop.
Phoebe: Okay, Jasmine, can you, can you ask Mr. Whiffler if he can wait for like five minutes.
Jasmine: Fine. (starts to leave, and points at Frank) I donít like you!! (leaves)
Phoebe: (turns around and hits Frank) So thatís what you thought I did!! God! Thatís not what I do!
Frank: Wait thatís-thatís, what thatís not what you do?
Phoebe: Nooo! Why would you think that?
Frank: I donít know, I mean, y'know, this is the city y'know, I just, I mean, I donít know.
Phoebe: Whatever, itís the perfect end to the perfect weekend anyways.
Frank: Oh, wait, no you're right, no it was perfect and I canít believe that I screwed it up so bad.
Phoebe: You really thought it was perfect?
Frank: Well, no, maybe-maybe it wasnít perfect, but y'know it was pretty cool, y'know, Ďcause we had all those great talks y'know.
Phoebe: Yeah, um, which ones in particular were great for you?
Frank: Well y'know about the tongue thing, y'know, and how I told you about my likes and my dislikes...
Phoebe: I donít....
Frank: How-how I like to melt stuff, and how I dislike stuff that doesnít melt.
Phoebe: Right, okay, um-mm.
Frank: Yeah, y'know I feel like I can really talk to you Ďcause y'know youíre my sister, y'know.
Phoebe: Yeah, I guess I do, yeah.
Frank: Then I go feel your friend up and make you mad at me.
Phoebe: Well, I-I wasnít hopping mad, y'know.
Frank: You hopped a little bit. Yeah, I really sorry.
Phoebe: Okay. All right, this is my favourite part of the weekend, right now, this.
Frank: Oh come on we went, we went to Time Square, we found ninja stars, I almost got arm broken by a hooker...
Phoebe: She wasnít a hooker.
Frank: Well, when I tell my friends about her she will be.
[Scene: Chandler and Joeyís, everyone is there, helping to lift the entertainment center into place]
Chandler: Okay, on three. One....Two....
Joey: Why donít we just go on two.
Chandler: Why two?
Joey: Because itís faster.
Chandler: Yeah, I coulda counted to three like four times without all this Ďtwoí talk.
Joey: All right, but in the future...
Ross: Okay!! Okay!!
Rachel: Come on!
Ross: Heavy thing, not getting lighter!
Chandler: Okay, one...two...
Joey: So we are going on two?
All: All right!! (they lift it into place, however there is one small problem, the unit is so long that it blocks some of both of their bedroom doors.)
Chandler: Oh, good job Joe.
Joey: Wow, itís big!
Chandler: Yeah-yeah, so big that it actually makes our doors look smaller!
Joey: Maybe, my rulerís wrong.
Phoebe: Maybe all the rulers are wrong.
Joey: Look itís not that bad. So what, it blocks a little of your door, a little of my door.
Chandler: Yeah, y'know what I got a better idea. How-how Ďbout it blocks none of mine door and a lot of yours? (throws his shoulder into the center to try and move it, but it doesnít move.)
Joey: Yeah, listen, before I forget that side is still wet.
[Scene: Central Perk, Rachel is serving some guy coffee.]
Rachel: Okay sir, um-mm, let see if I got this right. Ah, so this is a half-caf, double tall, easy hazel nut, non-fat, no foam, with whip, extra hot latte, right? (the guy nods) Okay, great. (she starts to walk away and under her breath) You freak.
(Isabella Rosellini enters)
Ross: (to Gunther) Thank you.
Isabella: (to Gunther) Um, coffee to go, please.
(Ross recognises her and goes over to the couch, mouthing ĎOh my Godí)
Ross: Isabella Rosellini. (points to her)
Monica: Are you serious? (they all look) Oh my God.
Ross: Damn! I canít believe I took her off my list.
Monica: Why? ĎCause otherwise youíd go for it?
Ross: Yeah, maybe.
Rachel: Oh-oh, you lie.
Ross: What you donít think Iíd go up to her?
Rachel: Ross, it took you ten years to finally admit you liked me.
Ross: Yeah, well missy, you better be glad that list is laminated.
Rachel: You know what honey, you go ahead, weíll call her an alternate.
Ross: Okay, hold my crawler.
Monica: Rach, are you really gonna let him do this?
Rachel: Honey, heís about to go hit on Isabella Rosellini. Iím just sorry we donít got popcorn.
Ross: (to Isabella) Hi! Hi, Iím Ross, you donít know me, but Iím a big, big fan of yours. I mean, Blue Velvet, woo-oo hoo! Um, I was wondering if I could um, maybe buy you a cup of coffee? (Gunther hands her change) Or maybe reimburse you for that one?
Isabella: Arenít you with that girl over there? (points at Rachel, who waves back)
Ross: Well, yeah, kinda. Um, but thatís okay, see we have an understanding, um, see we each have this list of five famous people, (gets his out) so Iím allowed to sleep with you. No, no, no, itís flattery.
Isabella: Iím sorry. (starts to leave)
Ross: Oh no, no, no, wait, wait, Isabella. Donít, donít just dismiss this so fast. I mean this is a once in a lifetime opportunity...
Isabella: Yeah, for you. Is that the list?
Ross: Um, yeah.
Isabella: May I see it?
Ross: Um, no.
Isabella: Come on! (grabs the list)
Ross: But, okay.
Isabella: (reading it) Iím not on the list!
Ross: Um, see, but thatís not the final draft.
Isabella: Itís laminated!
Ross: Yeah, um, okay see, you were, you were on the list but my friend, Chandler (Chandler waves) brought up the very good point that you are international, so I bumped you for Wynona Rider, local.
Isabella: Y'know itís ironic...
Isabella: ...because I have a list of five goofy coffee house guys and yesterday I bumped you for that guy over there. (points at a guy and leaves)
Ross: (to the rest of the gang) Weíre just gonna be friends.
[Scene: Chandler and Joeyís, they are admiring the entertainment center]
Joey: Y'know what?
Joey: I bet Ďya ya I could fit in there. (points to a hole in the center)
Chandler: Iíve got five bucks says you canít.
Joey: Get out your checkbook, mister.
Chandler: Oh, I think I have the cash.
(Joey successfully enters the entertainment center, and Chandler closes the door on Joey.)
Joey: You are dogged man! I totally fit!
Chandler: Yeah, you got me. (picks up a 2x4 and puts it through the handles so that the doors wonít open) Iím out five big ones! (puts the money in the crack between the door and frame) Here you go.
Joey: Thank you. Cha-ching! (Chandler starts to leave) Oh, well hello Mr. Lincoln. Better luck next time buddy. (Chandler leaves and closes the door) And the drinks are on me!
